On Novem­ber 5, Kur­dis­tan Re­gion Pres­i­dent, Ma­soud Barzani re­ceived a mil­i­tary del­e­ga­tion from the United King­dom headed by Michael Fal­lon, the Sec­re­tary of State for De­fense. Dur­ing the meet­ing Pres­i­dent Barzani and Sec­re­tary Fal­lon spoke of the lat­est mil­i­tary and se­cu­rity de­vel­op­ments in the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion and their im­pact on the larger Mid­dle East re­gion and the world as well.

Pres­i­dent Barzani ex­pressed his grat­i­tude to the gov­ern­ment of the United King­dom for their sup­port­ive stance both gen­er­ally and fol­low­ing the ISIS cri­sis par­tic­u­larly, adding that the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion is in need of all in­ter­na­tional support as it fights the ter­ror­ists of the Is­lamic State of Iraq and Syria.

Sec­re­tary Fal­lon stated that the gov­ern­ment of the United King­dom will con­tinue to as­sist the Kur­dis­tan Re­gion with mil­i­tary aid as it fights ISIS and that the war against ISIS is in­deed a larger ide­o­log­i­cal con­flict be­tween the free world and the Is­lamic rad­i­cal­ism.
